The Attitude of a Room

Different colors evoke different emotions. Light blues and greens are known to be calming, and tend to help soothe and relax. High energy colors like bright yellows and purples can add a level of excitement and fun to an otherwise bland environment. When people get angry they say that they are “seeing red,” but red is really a color of strength and conviction. When painting the rooms in your home, there are hundreds of different color combinations that can be used to bring atmosphere to any room. Each room has its own identity, and with the help of the creative and inspired experts at University Painters, you can choose the right color to breathe life and positive energy into each room of your home.

The bathroom is often the smallest room in the house, but plays one of the largest roles in our day. When you wake up in the morning, it is not uncommon to go straight from the bed to the bathroom, and vice versa at bed time. It is where you get ready to face the day, and the room should bring a calm and peaceful, yet lively energy to your day. Pastels can bring a Zen-like atmosphere to any bathroom. If your bathroom connects to a bedroom, consider warm colors that flow naturally into the color of the bedroom. Strong and contrasting colors can also give the illusion of space to a smaller bathroom.

The living room is your entertainment space. It’s where you and your family will relax and watch a movie, and it’s also the room where you will invite your friends for game night. Neutral colors are not only inviting, but can blend naturally into the colors of adjoining rooms. That makes them perfect for living rooms, which are often wide open spaces in the home. Do not be afraid of the multiple different options that are available in the spectrum of shades of white. A nice accent wall can stand out and give the room a little pop.

When it comes to the bedroom there are multiple things to consider. Start with how you want the room to feel; do you want it to have its own built-in energy, or be calm? Your bed sheets can also provide inspiration for the color scheme of the entire room, not just the bed. When painting your bedroom, consider giving the room a little extra character by coloring the ceiling. After walking through a house full of white ceilings, some unexpected color on the ceiling of your bedroom can really boost the room’s idiosyncrasy.

Each room in your home has its own personality that is chosen by you. The beautiful thing is, you can choose and change this personality over and over again. So every time you are ready to give a room a little facelift, let the experts at University Painters be your guides.
